Default Arians' comment

arians on allowing five sacks and several more hits on quarterback BR on sunday:

“They’re going to bring more than you can block, so you turn the farthest guy loose on the quarterback and that was (Mathias Kiwanuka). We don’t have enough guys to block that.”
yes, let's turn the DE loose on BR not once, not twice, but 3 times unblocked.

"(When) they were passing there were a couple times when I went through unblocked," Kiwanuka told the Giants' official website. "I am in a stance five yards away from the quarterback and they decided to leave me untouched."

Arians is a freakin idiot. How many times are they going to run that play on third down with no blockers in the backfield? It is STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

When will Arians learn to go to max protect like the patriost* do when Brady was getting man handled?
I mean keep the TE in to block and if the guy doesn't rush slip out into the flats. Or get just enough of a block on him then release...something to slow him down.

There were a few times when we had Eli dead-to-rights but Derrick Ward just cut his route short and Eli hit him. Only a gain of a yard or two, but no sack or loss of 5-7. Now, why can't we do that????

Of course, being able to hold with impunity and going through entire games without getting ONE FLAG makes it easier.

Got Goodell? The Steelers don't.

Arians is correct. That is how you do it, but the QB and WR have to be ready for a quick pass.

The one real bad sack was when Kiwi came free because Starks double teamed the guy over Kemoateu.....that was sad.

Former Redskin LaVar Arrington will even be able to sack Ben with the way Arians' offensive tactics are...... while sitting at home in a La-Z-Boy watching it!

incase you havent taken notice over the past decade, steelers' running backs and tight ends are out there to take up space on passing plays, they are not there to catch.

When this happens, the solution is a pass into the space vacated by Kiwanuka. The book on blitzing provides two choices: away from the blitzer or at him (the preferred choice). This is a read that has to be made by the player designated in advance to go into the vacated space (WR, TE or RB) and for Ben to read same. It's a short dump over Kiwanuka in space for 5+. That's how the blitzer is kept home and honest. This is relatively easy as everyone in the stadium can see the unblocked DE. The right scheme makes the blitzing team pay for such blitzes. If the player is unblocked, in theory, there is a free offensive player to release into the vacated zone. This is 'Pop Warner Lesson 101". Some teams actually encourage to the D to do this and entice them to send an unblocked guy rushing in with the play designed to dump it off into his space. Many screens are set up this way. If you go back and look at the footage of the game, you will see that on two of his sacks this approach could have paid off with a gain and not a sack.
